    Yesterday I handed in my notice after 14 yrs with Arriva buses, it's been a difficult last 18mths and I've decided to head off in the M/H for the winter no itinerary other than Spain for Xmas/New Year and Tonka's meet in March and then maybe Morroco/Portugal, when the money runs out I'll head back hopefully about May. it's something me and my wife were going to do when I retired but it wasn't to be.
    Looking forward to meeting funsters out and about and swopping info and maybe tag on for a day or two.
    Dave
    Ps finish 21st Nov looking at Portsmouth - Le Havre 26th.

    Nice one Busman. Not many people die wishing they'd spent more time at work. (y)

    Congratulations Busman, I am sure that you will enjoy your trip to Spain.
    There will be plenty of Funsters in Spain over Xmas and New Year. Keep a
    lookout for us if you are in Benidorm.

    Nice move, give up driving buses for money and Er drive to Spain and Portugal for fun and no pay.

    Enjoy your trip you have earned it.

    I see my name has already cropped up twice on this thread!!
    I take no responsibility ;) but good luck Dave, get out there and enjoy it all..
    Life is what you make it and the reason why I finished work early to have more family time with my grandkids that I never had as a young working dad... PS... Mine's a cider when we meet up in sunny Spain..:)

    Good luck mate, remember when you get older you never regret doing something you only regret what you didn't do
    Enjoy

    Hi Dave, you said you would and you have, not what you wanted or planned , but now you have made new decisions and they sound pretty good to me think it's the best way to do it with out any schedules to stick to you've probably had enough of those on the buses.

    Please keep posting let us know what adventures you have, look forward to seeing you when you get back. Safe travels. x
